Niele Toroni was born in 1937 in Muralto (Ticino) on Lake Maggiore. He has lived in Paris since 1959. Toroni is a painter. His method is simple and intangible: "When I intervene as a painter, I show brush prints n°50 repeated at regular intervals of 30 cm, and it is never the same thing".
Editing Niele Toroni's "things written, published (or not)" is a paradox, because he claims to be essentially a painter, and not an artist, much less a writer.
If the collected texts, notes, letters and interviews do not allow us to understand his painting, they nevertheless constitute both the off-field and the counter-field of his practice. The verve and humor that characterize them, the play between the French and Italian languages contribute to foster the libertarian spirit of the painter's thought.
